What's on

Parish Eucharist / Morning Worship

Every Sunday at for 1 hour
St Francis of Assisi, Saxon Green
Saxon Green Bridgwater, TA6 4JA, United Kingdom

We are open for weekly worship at 10am each week.

Our regular service is a Parish Eucharist where we celebrate God's love for us in hearing the Word of God from Scripture and a talk by one of the ministers followed by the sharing of the blessed bread and wine as our Lord Jesus commanded us to.

We have returned to sharing the bread and wine separately using the common cup, but will continue to offer Holy Communion by intinction for those who would prefer.

On the first Sunday each month there is a said service of Holy Communion at 8:30am with the 10am service being a family service held in the hall next door.

The Lighthouse club will not be meeting formally again until September 2023 but check out Lighthouse club Facebook group for one off events.

The service will commence at 10am and last for approximately 1 hour.
